Leading with a sweet aroma of butterscotch and hazelnuts, caramel and spice, this Amontillado fits nicely whenever good taste and sophistication reside.
Amontillado pairs well with the smoky taste of grilled mushrooms or roasted glazed chicken. It also works incredibly well as a deglazing wine for any poultry or meats.
"A hint of sweetness softens this full-bodied Amontillado. It evolves from caramel and toffee flavors to roasted almond and coffee as the sweetness gives way to a firm, dry finish."
"With a nose of toffee, dried apricot, cocoa powder and rancio, this is classic off-dry amontillado. It feels fresh and active, then tastes rich and moderately sweet, with flavors of hazelnut, caramel, toasted banana, orange and spice. Nutty and smooth on the finish."
This Amontillado was simply the best beverage that I have ever tasted. Granted, I am no wine connoisseur and I am too cheap for vintage liquor, but this stuff was amazing. ---By the way, why do people write reviews complaining that sherry tastes like sherry? Sherry is supposed to be heavier and have a more concentrated flavor than wine; even light, dry sherry's are full of flavor. In my opinion,fortified wines are more enjoyable when they are sipped in small quantities like whiskey as opposed to drinking them like wine; the flavors and aromas are less overpowering that way.
Smooth, slightly sweet, good for both drinking and cooking.
